Traits

Intuition. I know I have it and it serves me reasonably well. What is it though? These two definitions are objective.

1. The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational processes; immediate cognition. Synonyms:reason
2. Knowledge gained by the use of this faculty; a perceptive insight.(1)

In everyday lingo it’s a gut feeling that we get when we are caught in some sort of pickle. If you have ADD or ADHD then this is probably one of your traits along with creativity, sensitivity, and intelligence. Where we lack in attention and impulse control, these traits will hopefully even the scale for us in this non-ADD friendly world of detail we live in. My intuitive conclusion is there is reasonable cause to think it will even out in the end.

He was close

Anthony Flew died at the beginning of this month according to the Time newspaper. He had been suffering from an ongoing disease. He is known for developing some good arguments against the existence of God that fell short of being compelling to the point of denouncing the existence of an all powerful, knowledgeable, loving God. It was the complexity of recent DNA models within molecular science, fine tuning in many spots in astrophysics such as gravity, and many others teleological observations that led him to realize that it is a very slim chance that such complex states of existence could come into being by mere chance. Flew did not go on in believing in the gospel message, but we can learn from his life that even if someone has turned so far from God they can turn around heading back toward Him. Hopefully, further than Flew (he might have professed his faith in the Son of Man in the end). My prayers go out to the Flew family in their time of mourning.

Consider the Reasons

Not to be branded

White suppremists is kind of an odd topic to start a blog off with, but what the heck. Three years ago, at the Missouri University I was attending at the time, we had a white suppremist group protest on the University campus. Over a hundred police had to escort them on as they paraded. This group of individuals had a right to do this due to the fact we have freedom of speech in this democracy despite some of their immoral actions of extremism. It seems they do this in many places as it made the news in LA(see link below). I just hope and pray people of the Caucasian ethnicity are not erroneously associated with the thinking that white suppremist groups represent Caucasians in general. Color of skin in the end really does not matter, but what we do. I hope people judge me on my merits. Consider the reasons.
